Insights from Actual Kronos Customer Reviews

Customer service was horrible. The software is exceptionally antiquated for our needs. This is not a system that is compatible with a 21st century workplace. Exceptionally disappointed.
Taken from
The cost vs. value is horrible. The system is primitive and there is a lot of lost functionality. There are constant outages with services and the payroll interface is almost terrifying.
Taken from
None of the various modules work similarly to each other and don’t work well together. The software is painfully slow for users. User administration involves dozens of pages of configurations with no clear description of what each option does.
